lyrics

The Truth - Beyoh Welloh

(Verse 1)
They're still breaking promises and they stealing from the people
All these networks not showing true face of all this evil
Man it's messed up but all we gotta do is pray
Keep our heads up first ones here & we will stay
Keep the pride nation wide this the day that we gon' rise
It's been time after time & they still don't get it right
All I see in this world is that people won't protect it
Government still trying to poison all the people & reservations
Police still being corrupted tell us who do you protect
Selling out because of oil and a nice lookin' check
But we'd rather have water for our sons & for our daughters
Fight for all our rights it's what the fathers would've wanted
Stayin rezz'd out while the drums keep thumpin
Know our where abouts we planted all over the country
Tell me what do you envision Natives always on a mission
Spreading peace & all the wisdom it's what all their people's missin'

(Chorus) 2X
I just speak the truth,
It might be nothing to you,
But all my natives know it's true,
So I'll just speak the truth yeah, I'll just speak the truth

(Verse 2)
Black out in the media they don't wanna see their crimes
Put some mercenaries on us & won't call it genocide
Big company's got the politics in pockets
Legal documents denying everything they're talkin
Landowners get evicted just for being on the route
Crossing reservations but won't cross a white town
Fight for mother earth man it's sad we even gotta fight
Against the us government, the one that invented genocide
Tribes all gather and they're only speaking peace
But police are protecting all the hearts full of greed
Protectors only speak and pray for a day of victory
Government respect the treaty? Go check our history
America was never great since columbus and the slaves
To this very day where they're building over graves
Time for a change and it's time for our chance
But one thing we learned was "don't trust your government"

(Chorus) 2X
I just speak the truth,
It might be nothing to you,
But all my natives know it's true,
So I'll just speak the truth yeah, I'll just speak the truth
